Blitzen Trapper perform at Old Abandoned Warehouse–Scooby Doo nowhere in Sight


Last week during SXSW I had the pleasure of accompanying Blitzen Trapper to the Seaholm Power Plant in Austin, TX—a locale that has not been producing power for years and that will most certainly be turned into condos by the next time I’m in Austin. The place was awesome—the crew said they couldn’t shoot in the lower levels of the building because they were infested with snakes, and I heard a dead bat fell on someone’s head also. Anywho, we were there to shoot a promo piece for mtvU’s Ahead of the Curve —lots of Sub Pop bands have done these including No Age, Fleet Foxes, CSS, and Foals. (Okay, I guess not lots, just those ones.) So, here are some sneak peak photos of the band doing an a capella version of “Sleepytime in the Western World” a la Boyz 2 Men. I’ll post a link when they’re done movie-magicking the whole thing.
